Enrollment Trends

Waukee Community School District is a quickly growing school district in west of Des Moines, IA. We strive to meet the needs of our growing population with state of the art facilities, strong, dedicated teachers, influential leaders.

The funding Iowa school districts receive to educate our students is based on enrollment. Specifically, certified enrollment. Certified enrollment is based on the number of students living in a school district. It is taken by districts on the first day of October each school year.

Under state law, certified enrollment is used in the formula that determines state funding for our schools. It also includes the “weighting,” or additional funding for students in certain programs, such as students who receive assistance in learning the English language.
